This is correct for the power supply. 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) is the size for ATX power supplies.

The larger dimensions you are seeing on sites like Amazon are likely the dimensions of the packaging.

I recently started building my own PC and decided to get the MSI MAG A750GL PCIE5. The only problem was that it didn't fit inside my case, with the PSU being 304mm (L) x 229mm (W) x 152mm (H) (12 x 9 x 5 inches). While most sources listed its dimensions as 304x229x152mm, I found website saying the dimensions are actually 140mm (L) x 150mm (W) x 86mm (H). I assume the larger measurements include the packaging box, but either way, I'd like to confirm."

 

PSU that has higher dimensions and the on im trying to buy : https://www.amazon.com/MSI-MAG-A750GL-Gaming-Supply/dp/B0CC3QBGDL?th=1

Quite frankly, that aspect should be specified, whether it's referring to packaging size, or the size of the power supply. Amazon has two fields referencing the size of the product - one of them could absolutely be used to reference the actual size of the actual item being purchased. I would argue that most people do not care about packaging size, and only care about the size of the actual item being sold.

Amazon only cares about the packaging size for how much space it takes up in their warehouse and on their trucks. It's up to the seller to include the product dimensions in their product description/specifications. 

 

The product description on Amazon has an image of the power supply with the dimensions shown.f762aaa7-6588-4d20-b399-e50f85ae0a5b.__CR0,0,600,450_PT0_SX600_V1___.jpg

I totally agree. I was getting so confused thinking that it might not be the same power supply lol

The product description on Amazon has an image of the power supply with the dimensions shown.

The information is under "Technical Details". Perfect spot to define the dimensions of the product, aside of images embedded within the listing. The field "Product dimensions" seems like the perfectly titled field for such information. Regardless of the root cause of the issue(whether it's Amazon or MSI), if Amazon is going to provide both fields, then one of those should define the dimensions of the actual product being sold, instead of duplicating the values for two differently named fields.

 

Referencing an image within the listing shouldn't be a requirement to have access to accurate dimensions of the product.
